About the Manual

About the Manual


Objectives
One of the most important features of Tellabs 8000 network manager is its capability to support the provisioning of circuits end-to-end via the graphical user interface. The circuit information stored in the Tellabs 8000 network manager database and the cross-connection information in the actual node should always be consistent. However, sometimes inconsistencies occur. This manual describes the Cross Connection Consistency Checker tool, meant for troubleshooting the consistency problems. Consistency check is supported for PDH 1/0, SDH 4/1 and SDH 4/4 layer connections. The supported node types include the Tellabs 8100 and Tellabs 6300 series nodes.

Audience
The Cross Connection Consistency Checker tool is to be used by an experienced network operator who is already familiar with Tellabs 8100 managed access system nodes and units and knows how to use the X-Debugger tool.

1 Functionality of Cross Connection Consistency Checker

1 Functionality of Cross Connection Consistency Checker


Cross Connection Consistency Checker reads connection information from the Tellabs 8000 network manager database and Tellabs 8100 or Tellabs 6300 network element. After this it compares the connection information and prepares a report. The report lists the connections and their statuses. Suspicious connections are displayed in red. The status of a connection can be one of the following:
Connection Status Status OK Missing from database Missing from hardware Conict Explanation Connections in the network element and in the database are consistent. There is a cross-connection in the node hardware that does not have a database equivalent. This is an error and the reason for this should be found out. The probable cause text in the Connection Details dialog may provide the cause. A connection that should exist in the network element according to circuit information in the database is missing. This is an error. The probable cause text in the Connection Details dialog may provide the cause. The connection found in the network element is different from what is expected according to the database data. This is an error. The probable cause text in the Connection Details dialog may provide the cause. The program failed to get connection information on a circuit from the database. The most common cause for this error is incomplete circuits in the database. Some connections in the network element are not modelled as circuits. One example of these is the sync byte cross-connections on the GMU and GMX units.

2 Using Cross Connection Consistency Checker


2.1 Starting Cross Connection Consistency Checker
Cross Connection Consistency Checker requires specic application level privileges. First check that the privileges have been dened for the prole used. Start the tool by selecting the Start - Run menu option in Windows and enter the command xconcc. You can also start the program by double-clicking the xconcc.exe icon in the NMS\bin directory.

Cross Connection Consistency Checker privilege allows you to read all node and circuit data from the database and the network.

2.2

Selecting Nodes
You can select the nodes to be checked in the Search Nodes dialog. You can open the dialog by clicking the Select button. In this dialog you can enter the node retrieval criteria. The nal search criteria is a combination of the given values; the elds are separated by logical AND. You can search the nodes by using the elds listed in the table below.
Field Node ID Meaning Node ID in the database. The following characters/operators are recognized: , - > < => <= Examples: 5000 500, 501, 510 >5000 5000-5100 5000, 6000-7000 Node name. The following characters/operators are recognized: * ? * matches from 0 to any number of any characters. ? matches exactly one character of any type. Examples: Tampere_* nds nodes whose names start with Tampere_. *_DXX nds nodes whose name end in _DXX. Node_50? nds nodes with names Node_501, Node_502 etc. but not Node_50. Node hardware type. Select the value from the drop-down list. Area ID of the node. Location ID of the node.

Field Node State Region ID Node Subtype

Meaning Node state. Select the value from the drop-down list. Region ID of the node. Node subtypes to be selected. Select the value from the drop-down list. The node subtype is not used with Tellabs 8100 nodes.

The default search criteria retrieve all nodes that are in In Use state.

2.3

Checking Cross Connections Consistency


Step 1 Make sure that there are as few changes in the network during the consistency check as possible. The ongoing circuit loop tests, circuit recovery and circuit connection operations can result in conicts or extra connections in the report. Select the nodes to be checked: Click the Select button to open the Search Nodes dialog. Specify the conditions for node retrieval (for further information see 2.2 Selecting Nodes). Click OK. On the Node Selection tab, select the nodes to be checked. You can sort the columns in the node list by holding the Alt key down and clicking the column header. Step 3 Start the consistency check: Click the Check button. Wait for the operation to complete.

Step 4

Study the results: First check the status of the operation for each node in the list. If the operation failed on a node, you can view additional information by double-clicking the corresponding row on the Node Selection tab. If the operation was successful, double-clicking the node row opens the Test Status dialog displaying summary information about the consistency check results. Click the Report tab and check the results. You can view additional information on a report row by double-clicking the corresponding row. This opens the Connection Details dialog. While the dialog is open, clicking a row on the Report tab will update the dialog with the details of the row. If it is possible that an error in the report results from activity in the network during the consistency check, rerun the check for the node in question. You can save the report or the node list as a text le by selecting the File - Save menu option. This saves the active view. You can print the report and node by clicking the + sign in the right corner of the list view and by clicking the Print button in the dialog that opens. You can sort the report rows by column values by holding the Alt key down and clicking the column header. You can lter report rows using the controls in the View frame of the Report tab.You can select whether all connections are displayed or only those with conicts by ticking the appropriate radio button. You can also dene a node and/or a circuit whose details you wish to view from the appropriate drop-down lists.
